UNICEF works with the institutions of the European Union to uphold children’s rights across Europe and worldwide
Strong partnerships with governments, non-government organizations, civil society, and the private sector make UNICEF’s work for children possible.
One of UNICEF’s largest contributors is the European Union (EU), comprising several institutions with whom we have developed a strong strategic partnership.
